Description:

The German development agencies GTZ and KfW commissioned the study in order to fill an information gap on SSIF in northern Namibia and the current development in the production of HFP.

Summary / Notes:

Namibia is a semi-arid country in which 70% of its two million inhabitants depend on agriculture. Traditionally, forms of agriculture are subsistence-oriented and comprise livestock keeping, in the North combined with rain-fed staple crop production. This report deals with the recent development of small-scale irrigation farming (SSIF) and production of Horticultural Fresh Products (HFP) in the communal areas of the Kavango and Omusati Regions in the North of the country.
